I feel as though everything that has happened should have it's own blog post. And maybe I will break it down a little bit in the coming weeks. So let me first start with TouchGlobal's February meetings in New Orleans. Again, I'm so so so thankful for the overwhelming amount of support I receive to do my job. And it is a wonderful job, indeed. I was able to see and fellowship with my TouchGlobal family and learn more about what is going on at our different sites, especially New Jersey where we stationed ourselves after Sandy.
One exciting turn of events that I'd like to announce is that we are changing our name from TouchGlobal to ReachGlobal Crisis Response. Nothing inside the ministry is changing, nor the things that we do. The name change is happening in order to bring better understanding to who our ministry is and what we do. It brings clarity to the fact that we are a part of the Evangelical Free Church of America. From a communications standpoint, re-branding is always a difficult endeavor, but I believe this is in the best interest of our ministry. If you have any questions, please feel free to ask!
Needless to say, though, being in New Orleans for 5 days was an absolute dream! I was able to attend church at Castle Rock in the city, meet some new friends there, hang out in the French Quarter, and spend time with the lovely people on staff during our 8.5 hour meetings :)
